Best way to get to Kunozen Toshogu Shrine very efficient great views and the Shrine is really worth the visit. Very touristy.

In our opinion unless you are using the ropeway to access the Kunozan Toshogu Shrine it is not much of a stand alone attraction. It is very expensive for a short ride with limited views and scenery. A full gondola car holds over 30 people...More

I do feel the Nihondaira Ropeway was expensive considering the distance travelled and the view. If you do want to visit Kunozan Toshogu Shrine then it'll be worth it if you don't want to climb all the way up. However, don't expect any Mt Fuji...More

Everything about this ropeway and Nihondaira was super misleading in my opinion. First of all, one thing that I didn't realize is that this ropeway only takes you to the shrine and that's it. If you hike up towards Nihondaira from the port area, then...More

This is the only way to go visit the Toshogu Shrine. The views from the cable car are pretty impressive, you can see the shoreline & bay. The Nihondaira Park that is right by the Ropeway is a terrific spot to see Mt. Fuji except...More

We took the ropeway route to the shrine - well worth it for the amazing views across the bay. If weather cooperates you will see Mt. Fuji. We could just make it out above the clouds

The cable car is the only way to reach the shrin quickly and without much physical effort. Car holds about 30 people. Neither span, length, or height of the cable car trajectory is remarkable.
